Muze PNote While on its self-titled debut Storm & Stress made a legitimate (if somewhat smirking) attempt to fuse avant-rock and jazz, on their sophomore effort, UNDER THUNDER & FLUORESCENT LIGHTS, any semblance of form goes out the window in favor of a series of extended minimalist improvisations, supplemented with tape samples and (sporadic) vocals. Whether this amounts to noise or cerebral, incidental music is debatable; whatever the case, kudos are in order for the three-piece's audacity.

Engineer: Jim O'Rourke

Professional Reviews

Alternative Press (4/00, p.102)
- 4 out of 5 - "...jokes without punchlines, beats without meters, notes without staffs, developments without points of closure....with this album [they've] become so good at provoking questions, that answers...well, they simply aren't the 'point'."

Magnet (4-5/00, p.92)
- "...Listening to [this LP] is a bit like trying to piece together the events of a violent space battle based upon the wreckage left in its wake....Music has been blown apart and shattered into countless pieces here, almost beyond recognition..."

The Wire (3/00, p.58)
- "...Oddly engaging, generating a bizarre internal logic from unlikely sources..."

CMJ (1/24/00, pp.25-6)
- "...noodly, experimental [and] warmly listenable...showing evidence of both heavy improv and ample tape manipulation....a testament to abstract minimalism that manages to give a few subtle nods to standard songwriting..."

NME (Magazine)
(2/14/00, p.43)
- 7 out of 10 - "...luxuriates in the boundless possibilities of chaos theory....breaking right through...the boundaries of music. And subsequently, sometimes avoids making music at all....This is so far out [it's] panoramic."
